Islamabad: Hours after General Asim Munir was appointed the new Chief of the Army Staff, a couple of pages from Shuja Nawaz’s book titled “The Battle For Pakiatan” surfaced online.
In his 2019 book, the author painted a different picture of the former DG ISI contrary to what Pakistanis believe.
If Shuja Nawaz is to believe, it would be hard for the new army chief to resist his urge to interfere in politics.
But former Islamabad High judge Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui disputed the claim made in the book about his removal.
He said, “In my removal, Gen Aasim Munir paid no role whatsoever. In this regard conspiracy was hatched by Mian Saqib Nisar, Asif Saeed Khosa, Maj Gen Faiz Hameed with support of his Boss. President Arif Alvi showed unprecedented haste in according approval, notification within 40 mins.”
Shuja Nawaz responded to Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui on Twitter and revealed the source of his information about General Asim Munir.
The information given in the book could not be independently confirmed.
